Forum: petabox Subject: Odd storage formating question

I am aware nobody is forced to answer this, and this is a oddly specific and somewhat stupid question, but I am interested in knowing more.

Riding off an older post (forgot the link, believed to be about how much space total was used. Reply mentioned "about 75%" if that helps) on here, I was wondering how that type of limit would have been reached. Ex: if using ≤ 50Gbof 100Gb, you would fill it with large files, such as long movies/videos, then just metadata or other txt files to fill the remaining, right? Or are some servers just dedicated to certain file type of a certain size.

the recommendation is that regardless of file format items (pages) not exceed 1,000 files or 500GB and the no single uploaded file exceed 1.75GB. otherwise things can break.
